The Samsung S Pen is one of the world's most popular detachable tools for Galaxy Note line of phones and tablets. The Samsung S Pen can be used to input commands to mobile device or graphics tablet. Users can also use it to draw or make selections by tapping the stylus on the screen. Recent reports claim that the Samsung S Pen is finally making the jump from Android devices to Windows laptops.
